This recipe is super quick and easy, as the crispy crust is not yeast-based and doesn’t need to rise; it can even be made in the food processor.
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup whole-wheat flour
- 11⁄2 tsp. baking powder
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1/4 cup butter (1/2 stick), chilled and cut into pieces
- 1 cup milk
- 3 cups tomato sauce
- pizza toppings of choice
Preparation Place the flours, baking powder and salt into the container of a food processor and pulse until mixed. Drop in the butter pieces and pulse until large crumbs form.
With the motor running, pour in the milk and process just until a clump of dough forms.
Scrape the dough onto a lightly floured surface. Form four balls. Roll out each ball with a lightly floured rolling pin into an 8-inch circle.
Place two circles on a greased baking sheet. Top with the toppings of your choice, and bake at 450 degrees F for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden on top and bottom. Peek underneath the crust to make sure it’s golden brown.
Yields 4 small pizzas.
